New budget item feared to fuel blue-green algae on the Treasure Coast
The Florida Oceanographic Society is one of 55 organizations and municipalities that asked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to veto the budget item.
"Which really hampers the ability for local governments to restrict fertilizer, especially during this wet season," Florida Oceanographic Society Executive Director Mark Perry said. We had to ask if the governor could veto, and he chose not to."
